| 07/21/2005 | Rangers acquire two pitchers

Traded to Texas for someone named Matt Lorenzo, an A-ball pitcher. Who it is isn’t important; what’s important is that the Gryboski Era is over. I’ve been after the Braves to trade him for a couple of years, not just because I don’t like him but because his ERAs have been better than his actual pitching.

I assume that the Braves have another move coming. It could be to call up Lerew or someone to be the replacement reliever, it could be a trade for another pitcher, or it could be to call up Pena for three days while Estrada serves his suspension.
